Seems like a old fashioned seaside hotel but completely renovated with great view to the seaside. We had a room at the topfloor with nice balcony, very good equipped. Breakfast is good, the surrounding great even in a city like Santander a real spot

We have spent a very nice night in this hotel. Our room was not too big, but with a great window front to the seaside and a large terrace. Bed was heavenly comfortable. We have made a great room dinner with this lovely view. The supermarket is located direct behind the hotel. The hotel restaurant we have not tasted, because...

Excellent The hotel looks traditional on the outside but has been completely gutted and modernised inside. There is certainly a wow factor when walking into the central atrium. Check in was swift with a welcome greeting, a request for a signature and scan of passports. No forms to fill out. Our sea view room on the second floor (228) had...

Lovely hotel just opposite the beach. Very clean and tidy. Only down side was the food in the restaurant in the evening was very poor but the breakfast was very tasty. The shops were a 25-30 min walk but very short taxi ride

Stayed here as part of a Bridge w/e tournament & got very good rates on a sea view room. From the outside it is a perfect turn of 20th century seaside Queen of a hotel, more like from a French resort. And inside is a perfect modern remodeling for excellent size of rooms and comfort. Absolutely no complaints - except...

Stayed for a 2 day business visit. Excellent beach front location. Classic design on the exterior with modern spacious rooms, many with outstanding views of the water. Very reasonable rates make this hotel the best value in Santander. Good breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. Taxi stand out in front of the hotel appears to have taxis round the clock....

This hotel was just perfect. Very convenient to the beach and nice area to walk around. We had a nice room overlooking the water. We did need to pay 20 Euro for overnight parking but it was a really nice place with a very good staff.

This hotel is right across the beach and great area for sightseeing and being outdoors. It has a cafeteria and restaurant in the premises. Not to far for the city center, where most restaurants and bars are located. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, the bathroom is quite big with lots of toiletries, the only thing I did not like was...

I had the pleasure of staying in the Gran for the first time in November, and I for one will say that it won't be the last time. I am a regular traveller to Santander thanks to the city and the people. I have stayed at a few other hotels in the city and I can easily say that the...

Location is very good next to the Sardinero Beach. Hotel is very clean and modern. Rooms are quite large and many attractions and restaurants within walking distance. It is extremely well priced for the quality of the hotel. We ordered room service and it was fast and the food was very good. Highly recommend this hotel for your stay in...
